We use RT 3.8.1 (gentoo,apache2,mod perl) for use with our sales team
for Safaris in Tanzania. We have extremely poor internet connectivity
from Tanzania (no fibre yet) - our ISP has less transit B/W than most of
you have to your homes! and 800ms latency. It is therefore important to
us to keep b/w usage to a minimum. If you’ve every used a 14.4modem, its
I have a few ideas to help this and have searched the net without luck.
I can code basic perl.
- I’d like to automatically strip sigs from emails stored in the
database, so the Ticket’s page is not so long with all the transactions
- can anyone suggest where i should put the code to do:
to remove a sig like
or should it be in a scrip?
- I’d like to parse the transaction through something like uniq(1) to
get rid of duplicate lines, and also to remove lines that are:
to only one line.
where should i put this code? in a scrip, or in local/lib/RT? which
module? I think i can write the code, but need advice on the correct way
to go about it.
I’d like to only display the last few emails for a ticket, and even
then, maybe only the first 5-6kb of a email - our clients reply without
trimming mails to relevant detail, and threads can be over 50 mails
long! that can make a display ticket page over a MB in some cases. I
thin this may be a larger hack.
If anyone else has any great ideas about how to optimise RT for low
bandwidth, I’d love to know!
thanks in advance
